  1. Was talking on discord, someone mentioned UN, wanted to find the link, but only managed to find this topic Then someone else posted the link, so, here it is https://thexrpdaily.com/index.php/2019/01/14/united-nations-confirms-piloting-ripples-cross-border-payment-technology/
  2. The usage is still lower than the needed amount for all of them to get additional XRP? Just a thought. Maybe a bit too vague, but hey
  3. So, I recently watched a video with 4 guys, Head of Group Inovation, Societe Generale, Chief Marketing from Blockpass, Global head of strategic accounts Ripple and Head of blockchain and UK group inovation, UBS. Now we allI know how big Marcus Treacher is in the "blockchain world". I googled the rest a bit, but what I'm curious about it blockpass (PASS). Anyone know anything about it? I've checked the site, the idea is good. I was told "Civic is for KYC" but Blockpass guy was on the same stage as Marcus Treacher, which could mean maybe they have a good plan just like Ripple (subjective, I know, but bear with me) The link btw is: Am I completely overvaluing the fact he's up there with the rest of the guys who (seem?) to be far ahead in production/realisation/etc.? Am I seeing something that's not there, overthinking perhaps? is it simply a matter of paying enough to "sit with the big boys"? Any thoughts/ideas/suggestions/information regarding this and Blockpass (PASS) in general? EDIT: It's KYC coin, so to speak. I was told Civic is (was?) meant for this. blockpass.org is the site.
  4. Was told he resigned but holds position till may/june. No idea how accurate that is, though.

    My thoughts are probably the same as for any other "insider leaks". While I'm open to almost anything being true, there's always that "If it makes you money, why would you share if sharing means lowering your profit?" So, the motives are probably either: "Leaking" as shilling, to up the profit ""Leaking" nothing except own, personal opinion that may or may not be based on something substantial. On the other hand, there's certainly a scenario where XRP can jump from X to Y in a very short timeframe, no matter the exact numbers. EDIT: Just think of "betting insider leaks" or however you want to call them. If you have information to win a bet, why share? Why sell that info when the info itself lets you get (the same amount of) money? Not to mention more people betting actually lowers the odds, so you make less. No sense xD So.....NEXT!
  6. Well, I had the same thought. Perhaps because I still strongly believe in XRP. Perhaps with other crypto's, I'd feel different? *scratches his beard*
  7. Googling bspin.io, which is what my friend runs doesn't give much. Then again, it's a fairly new one, so I guess I couldn't have found anything. I also guess that's a good thing Any site that could actually do a more specific check for such a thing or do we all just resort to googling?
  8. THat's actually not a bad idea. I used to play holdem for quite some time and thought of newcomers "paying me" in XRP sounds kinda nice xD Well, this casino has instant deposits (I thought all did *scratches his head*), though withdraws are possible after verifying deposit. Again, I thought this was the case with all casinos, lol xD
  9. First of all, I hope this is the right subforum to ask. A friend is running a BTC casino (No, I won't name it, don't worry xD), so it got me thinking. I've seen several BTC casino, as in casino's where you deposit in BTC, right? What about if you could deposit in XRP? Any thoughts on whether it would be more aluring, so to speak, to you if it accepted XRP? Think it would make ANY difference? I'd like to hear any and all thought on this, if anyone has them. Thnx ^^

    Look whats on the IMF website!

    Says under maintenance, so can't read. Will have to wait, I guess. Also, the first thing I thought, when I saw the link, was: "Damn, how much did he had to dig to get to that"
  11. Quick mobile search led me to your topic xD https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/25281-terrapay-ripple-and-africa/

    Stamping on Corruption

    I'm pretty sure it's like it's like 10:1 for corrupted and I'm pretty sure I'm being generous I have asked myself similar questions before, why would the corrupt world (and it IS corrupted) accept such transparency? Wouldn't they fight it just like other smart solutions just cause of their greed? Or will they (after trying to fight it?) use what they must, so to speak, and have the rest using new way of being "invisible" to those they don't wan't to see it? An interesting question, for sure. Looking forward what other might say.

    Eurozone ?

    And not all have the same currency yet, too. EDIT: Also, not sure anyone feels he/she is a "EU citizen" like US people do, which is kinda interesting, I guess.
  14. Like I said many times, the potential of XRP has only got UP, IMHO. I started almost 2y ago and I haven't seen anything else other than progress. The price movement, again IMHO, means nothing since we need regulations and adoption/wider usage. Once that kicks in, we can talk. Till then...NOTHING has changed and we hodl. IMHO.
  15. Perhaps I'm too naive and I look at things in a too simple way, but I must say I don't see the price as a measure of anything (important), really. I started with all of this in March 2017, so not so long compared to some, but I always looked for bad side of Ripple/XRP, even before I bought some. I couldn't find it. Why am I saying this? Because Ripple has only gone forward with their plans, meaning if I liked them back then, I sure like them a whole lot more now. And, it's almost all still undecided, so to speak. We could remain at 0.3 or somehow all their plans will come true (with time, doesn't matter 1 or 20 years). So, my point is, noone should care about the price that much at this moment. Unless you're too invested, but then you made a mistake a long time ago and this isn't that discussion.
